My brother bought this a number of years ago (before it was discontinued), thinking he’d get into fly fishing....he never did...and after many years of badgering, he finally coughed it up to me:-)

That's a classic, quality made reel just like the Fin-Nor's models of the era, designed with small arbors, cork drags.

That's a gem to have and a nice addition to your collection.

Nice! I have a 1.5 and a 2.5. A good fishing friend fell ill and before he passed, gifted me the 2.5. I still use it, specially during albie season. A friend just picked up a mint 4.0 for potential BFT work.

Heavy and built like a tank, but if you don't mind that. Go for it. Its a first quality fly reel. But always rins after each fishing trip with warm fresh water and NEVER use WD40 ! (that's the worst you can do with (each) fly reel).
